Somebody help me! I love to read but I am having trouble finding new books that hold my interest.
I am not into vampires, the paranormal, or science fictions. I enjoy the chick-lit kind of books but I find that some are a little on the chessy side. I like Candace Bushnell, Jane Green, Emily Griffin and Jennifer Weiner. I have also enjoyed some of NIcholas Sparks books as well, but now I need help finding another great author and new books to read. I'd appreciate the help!

you should try marian keyes; it's chick lit with a darker side. the characters deal with real life situations like death, abuse, or addiction but it's not too depressing. i started out with this charming man.

oh, i also forgot about garden spells by sarah addison allen and chocolat by joanne harris. both fantastic books

I think Allison Winn Scotch would be right up your alley. Check out Time of My Life, or the new one, The One That I want. She also has a great website, and a helpful blog for aspiring writers:

Oh, and definitely try Bridget Jones's Diary if you haven't read that already, and the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella is fun. You might like The Last Will of Moira Leahy (by Therese Walsh) as well, although it's less "chick lit" and more "women's fiction."

My book is a "chick lit" book about 3 best friends in their 20s, written in episodes. So think Sex and the City mashed up with Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants? It's currently in ebook form only, but I have been asked by a major publisher to submit a proposal to turn it into a traditional print novel!

Twenty-Somewhere - $1.99

Kristan - writing dreams into reality

Anything by Marian Keyes or Sophie Kinsella.

Mr Right for the Night by Marisa Mackle is also funny and light-hearted.

Hi Andrews... Tgis is exactly the type of book I like to read (and try to write). I just released my first one on Kindle, Betting Jessica. You might check out the sample pages and see if it fits the style you are looking for. Also, I really like Lynne Messina, and I don't remember who it is by, but I just read a fun book called Definitely Not Mr. Darcy. I hope this helps. Cheers, Deanne

I would suggest:

Love and Lattes (A Meadow Ridge Romance)
Bunny Hills and Bikinis
The BITCH-PROOF SUIT (Irish Romantic Comedy)
Seven Exes Are Eight Too Many

And if you like a steamier funny romance try:

Simply Irresistible (A Lucky Harbor Novel) and the rest of the Lucky Harbor Series
